    Let's say 10 years from now the temperatures are going down and we come to the conclusion that it was bull shit all along???

    What will you say. :eusa_shifty:

    I probably wouldnt say it but I'd be thinking, "I told you so!". I'm not so sure we are finished with warming but the big feedbacks and catastrophic predictions are pretty much toast.

    Is there really any doubt that is exactly what is going to happen in the end? The wheels are falling off the greenhouse effect hypothesis (all versions of it) as we speak.

    Sure; but lets say for 10 years, or 20 or 30 or 40 ... temperatures have been going up unnaturally, since the Industrial Revolution, basically, do we come to the conclusion that Doubters are complete fucking idiots, or just your garden variety idiots?

    I dont doubt stuff is happening. It is a natural cycle. Has happened a few times. I DO doubt it is man-made.
